Elaine Whyler, RN, BSN, CCM
Quality Program Manager
How long have you been a nurse?
Why did you become a nurse?
I became a nurse because it is viewed as a “helping” profession and allows me to express myself in a caring and compassionate way.
What is your role at eviti, Inc.?
My role is to promote awareness of the importance of quality to our organization and facilitate a standard of excellence in our service delivery.
How does your role at eviti impact patients differently than working with patients in the clinical setting?
My role at eviti allows me to function from beyond the bedside as part of a team whose mission is to ensure evidence-based care is prescribed for all cancer patients that are members of a participating plan. Despite not being able to provide “hands-on” care, I am able to function in a role that facilitates high quality care to a much broader patient base.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy the fact that I have a unique role which allows me to interact with the various teams at eviti in order to achieve excellence and scalability in our service delivery.
How has nursing changed over the last 10 years?
Nursing has evolved to become more specialized, offering more opportunities for diversity and advancement.
What advice do you have for others who are considering becoming a nurse?
My advice would be to respond to the call because nursing is a profession that “gives back”, providing endless opportunities for self-expression, growth, and lifelong learning.
